Burns: About Doctor Who

By James H. Burns: A possibly interesting question for File 770 readers occurred to me over the weekend:  In CLASSIC “Doctor Who” do we ever see the Doctor cry?

One pal remembered Hartnell coming close, and I seem to have in my cranium an image of Jon Pertwee becoming a bit choked up…

I’m not sure about Romana or any of the other Gallifreyans, but is it possible –Time Lords don’t have tear ducts?

  1. I’ve seen nearly every classic episode from the Pertwee era onward, and some scattered Hartnell and Troughton stories, and from what I can remember of all of those… nope. Not any other adult Time Lord either, but Susan did cry at the end of “The Dalek Invasion of Earth”. (Cue esoteric arguments about whether Susan technically is a Time Lord or not.)
